Turnaround time on customized orders is outrageous.  The last custom 
desktop I had someone order was over a month to deliver.  It arrived 
DOA.  The replacement motherboard was DOA.  The one their tech replaced 
may not have been DOA, but was for the wrong system!  2+ months later, 
after more than losing my cool with the manager I got escalated to at 
IBM (yeah, they are still in the mix), they got a new system.  Two more 
cases like that.  I'm pretty much dealing with Acer and HP for any 
consulting work I do outside of my day job these days.
